Tayana 42 Center Cockpit

Jeff
The Tayana I am looking at luckily does not have the teak decks. I had a 42'' John G. Alden with teak decks and wont do that again.
I agree with you about the b/d ratio of the 42--- also I am deeply concerned about the black iron tanks. I had friends with a Hans-Christian and saw them go through nightmares because of the same sort of tank problem.

This Tayana has a 4-108 with 4700 hours on it so Im concerned about high engine hours as well.

I somewhat like the center cockpit because of the privacy it provides for the master stateroom aft.

At this point I have serious reservations about this boat. Intended use is fulltime liveaboard with winters spent in Belize or Costa Rica and summers spent on the Gulf Coast. She has been very well maintained with lots of good gear and electronics but.....

I also have looked at a Gulfstar 47 Sailmaster but.......
Thanks for the info
